A FedEx truck driver was carjacked Monday afternoon on Detroit's west side, with the suspect taking off with more than 200 packages.

It happened on Lindsay around 2:30 Monday afternoon.

The suspect jumped inside the truck wearing a mask and flashing a gun. He demanded the 37-year-old driver, Dyami Tate, get out.

The truck was eventually found hours later on Harlow, and two suspects were arrested for the carjacking.

Tate tells us he kept thinking about getting back to his nine-year-old daughter.

Thankfully, he was not injured during the brief encounter.

Tate has only been on the job for about a month and a half. He continued on with the rest of his shift, and plans to be back at work Wednesday.

No word if police were able to recover some of the packages.
